Sydney, London & New York: Simon & Schuster, (2017). "A tense, eerie thriller set in the icy reaches of Antarctica. When environmental scientist Laura Alvarado is sent to a remote Antarctic island to report on an abandoned whaling station, she begins to uncover more than she could ever imagine. Reminders of the bloody, violent past are everywhere. . . in this freezing, lonely landscape there are ghosts everywhere, and Laura wonders if her own eyes can be trusted. Has she been in the ice too long? Back at base, Laura's questions about the whaling station go unanswered, blocked by scientists unused to outsiders." Gradually, though, she pieces together a past and present of cruelty and vulnerability that can be traced around the world, from Norway, to Nantucket, Europe and Antarctica. 363 pp plus questions for discussion and an excerpt from her first novel, The Lost Swimmer.
